Rare Lamborghini Diablo Oro Elios Up for Sale

Anyone remember the Diablo? It was the last ‘proper raging bull’ from Sant’Agata, the last Lambo developed without Audi’s helping hand. It’s a bit of a relic by modern supercar standards, but the Lamborghini Diablo is still a highly coveted machine.

With 2,884 units assembled between 1990 and 2001, the Diablo is a rarer proposition than the Gallardo, Murcielago, Aventador and even the brand new Huracan, with the latter surpassing the 3,000 orders mark only recently. Priced at $249,888, the 2001 Diablo 6.0 SE we’re talking about today is no. 12 of 20 units that make up a limited-run finished in either Oro Elios or Marrone Ekilpsis (a.k.a. brown).

Boasting with a good ol’ 6-liter V12 monster based on the original Lamborghini V12 of the 350 GT, Miura and Espada, this is probably the last hurrah in terms of scary supercars. With 550 horsepower sent to the rear wheels via a manual transmission, in a time when fancy driving aids weren’t as mainstream as today, the Lamborghini Diablo is a bull you don’t take chances with because it’ll not end nicely.

The previously mentioned selling price may be a little too over the top for such a car...

...but the unique paint job isn’t the only special bit of kit on offer. A custom-made Larini exhaust, racing camshafts, OEM wheels wrapped in Pirelli P-Zero rubber, a parking camera, and a 3M film protecting that beautiful paint are some of those add-ons. To boot, the clutch is also brand new, as are the front shocks, the carbon ceramic brakes and the fully rebuilt transmission and recently serviced engine.

The seller says in the ad’s description that a sat nav system is also offered. As it’s always the case with Lamborghinis, the interior isn’t what any would call comfy or luxurious, but still - there’s carbon fiber here and there, a retro open gate gearbox with the grid and gear lever knob made from titanium, as well as beautiful Italian leather.
